Eddie Montgomery Marries Girlfriend Jennifer Belcher

Eddie Montgomery of Montgomery Gentry is officially off the market after marrying longtime girlfriend Jennifer Belcher.
The singer, 50, broke the news on Tuesday:

That’s certainly a whirlwind of events! From the photo, it looks like the two lovebirds couldn’t be happier. Montgomery certainly isn’t shy about proclaiming his love for Belcher (now Jennifer Montgomery), 41, exclaiming earlier in February, “Happy birthday Jen Jen OMG I LOVE THAT GIRL!!!!!!!!”
That’s a lot of exclamation points — which can only mean one thing: he’s head over heels for his new bride.
The couple has dated for the past several years, first stepping out at the 2011 Kentucky Derby. This is definitely a bit of good news, as Montgomery has had a rough past few years. In 2010, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and then went through an extremely emotional divorce with his wife of twenty years. In January he filed for bankruptcy after his restaurant closed.
Now, things are looking up for the ‘If You Ever Stop Loving Me’ hitmaker. Congratulations to him and his beaming wife!
